Keeping Hip to the Abbrevs

In an attempt to clue in my new readers, I thought I'd hip you newbies to some of the abbrevs. (that's an abbreviation for abbreviations.) I feel this is necessary after reading through some of your comments. Apologies to Laren, who felt especially left out today.

First of all, and most importantly, RBF stands for Root Beer Float, a staple in my pregnancy diet. It all started with a mass advertising campaign by Sonic, who offered their RBFs for only $.99! A steal by any standards. Their ad campaign was extremely effective; I probably contributed to about half to two-thirds of their RBF profits.

Also, thanks to a tip from Possum, I also regularly enjoy custard RBFs from Bops. I also keep a 2 liter of A&W handy as well as plenty of vanilla ice cream in case I need an emergency fix. Jack didn't believe me one day when he called and asked where I was and I told him I was on a beer run.

I thought everyone was familiar with SBTB, which obviously stands for Saved By the Bell, the best TV show EVER, except for possibly Murry (Maury Povich), until Jack asked me today what sbtb stood for. I feel as though I have truly failed as a wife, when my own husband doesn't even know sbtb. So now he does. and so do you.

I've also been known to use various pseudonymns for my never-ending bout with heartburn. It's also known as DV (devil's vomit) and the only cure, besides more cowbell, is Mylanta, aka, CWP (chalky white power). For more information, please see Heartburn Hotel.

On a brighter note, I've recently been presented with a clever new way to enjoy my CWP. I put it in the refrigerator, and when the DV hits, I pull out a shot glass, decorate it with chocolate syrup, then pour myself an icy cold shot of CWP and down it like a mudslide. MMMMM. deelish.

I think that just about covers it; however, please feel free to inquire if you're left confused. But don't blame me if I chew you out for not being up to date on the latest abbrevs. Just try and keep up.

ps: obviously, SB stands for Sarah Beth (my fetus). If you don't know that by now, you're hopeless.

truly, you have a dizzying intellect. BTW (By the way), did you know they are coming out with a ferris sequel???

thank you, thank you, thank you. i cannot even bear to repeat what my husband thought RBF might be, but i will say it involved discussion of a sexual nature that i'm not comfortable sharing with you yet.

glad that Root Beer was topic at hand. can we call her Saree Bethee for laughs?

pure genious I tell you. I thought about you yesterday as I went by Bop's after work to buy Trey's surprise Katie's Crunch. They are tell advertising RBF's (which, in their case, stands for Root Beer Freeze. What-ev)

GO SB GO! SEE HER TOMORROW! (not so much me, but you.)

heard about the ferris sequel, but i must admit, i'm not too excited about it. i mean, how can you really follow the original?

but who knows, right? I mean, look at what they did with all the free willy sequels. i hope the same guy who did those is doing ferris 2.
